Title: Bangkok Pool Party on a Pickup Truck (aka A short trip to my hometown)
Description: A satirical collage that pokes fun in a tongue-in-cheek way at foreigners celebrating Songkran (Thai New Year) festival in Bangkok.
Bio: Gloria Supatra Bhargava is a collage artist based in Bangkok. In particular, she likes to portray the iconoclastic dystopia of 1950s American Hollywood life against the backdrop of the newly-emerging super-societies of the future and the wider cosmos. Her works are often nihilistic, surreal, and with just the right touch of satire.
A fun to do list :)

I want to write different words for you
To invent a language for you alone
To fit the size of your body
And the size of my love.
I want to travel away from the dictionary
And to leave my lips.
I am tired of my mouth
I want a different one
That can change
Into a cherry tree or a matchbox,
A mouth from which words can emerge
Like nymphs from the sea,
Like white chicks jumping from the magician’s hat.
Take all the books
That I read in my childhood,
Take all my school notebooks,
Take the chalk,
And the blackboards,
But teach me a new word
To hang like an earring
On my lover’s ear.
